Course Description

Length: 1h 5min    Published: 11/15/2022    
The intersection between mass communications and the law can be a tricky one. Lawyers often can be a resource to the media and benefit from the free marketing of mass communication, but must also be careful not to jeopardize their case or violate their ethical duties. This course will teach trial attorneys how to understand when a case might be proper for media exposure and how to attract and work with the media in such a case. It will also help attorneys understand what to say and what not to say to the media, how media exposure can be used to benefit their clients, and how not to run afoul of their ethical obligations. Viewers will also hear several real-world examples that they can apply to their own practices.
Learning Objectives
* Learn how to identify which cases might be proper for media exposure
* Understand what to say and what not to say to the media in order to benefit your clients
* Know how to speak to the media without violating your ethical duties
